Grief & Loss

Anya Hunter, MA, MSW, LICSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

86 St. Paul Street, Burlington, VT

Grief is a natural human reaction to loss; some animals also grieve: elephants, horses, dogs, for instance. We need a safe, supportive space and kind, sensitive companions for our grieving process. As a therapist sitting with someone who's suffered a loss, I believe my role is to simply listen with kindness and compassion. To gently ask for more details, if it seems that more sharing about something would be healing. To allow tears, rage, disappointment, fear, anxiety, confusion -- whatever the feelings are, however they are. And to support insights and resolution, as time goes on. Hypnosis and guided imagery can also be very healing in the grief process.
